Erin (Paperback stash) *is juggle-reading*

Nothing like opening a book in a series and finding out it’s skipped forward…by six years. Yes, six years. Hear me sigh in irritation.

The last book left off with a stunning revelation, but we’ve skipped forward now. Once I got past that annoying development, the story continues to demand my attention.

Darren hasn’t seemed to think or tend to the views of the former traitor he was considering before (peace treaties), and while not enjoying killing, does it with more natural ease when it’s needed.
This book in the series is very much focused around the larger plot related to the twelve books. Whilst some of the previous books were focused more upon Darren’s experiences this one brings us back to the war which is going on.

After being visited by a character from one of the past books, our main characters find themselves at the Cirque once again. Here events are not quite what they once seemed, with questionable motives in the air. Our characters find out that completing the mission that the

Darren Shan, now a Vampire of high standing, is sent on a mission along with an Elite Squad to eliminate the threat of the murderous Vampaneze and their Lord. Will Darren succeed, and if he does, will it have been worth it?
Expanding on the books before it, “ Hunters of the Dusk” might seem like a good book at first. It has action, as well as a fairly interesting plot. However, the problem in the last book has not been fixed. Darren Shan, a mere, young, half-vampire, is chosen by an agent of De
Six years have passed since The Vampire Prince and the vampires are at war with the vampaneze. Along comes Mr. Tiny, bearing an ominous look into the future. Darren, Mr. Crepsley, and Harkat Mulds are dispatched on a mission to do the impossible; find and kill the Lord of the vampaneze. If they should fail, the destruction of the vampire world will be on their hands.


Though I found the overall plot of Hunters of the Dusk boring, I’m glad I didn’t have to sit through the six years that Darren

As Darren holds the spot of vampire price since he was supposed to be sentenced to hall of death for running away from his trials but was voted by the vampires to become prince wich was the only solution other than death. Comes a well expected vsit by all vampires, Desmond Tiny who is hated by the vampires made a prophecy talking about the Vampaneze Lord and a great war. The Vampaneze Lord is alive and traveling the world. Now, it's up to Darren Shan, Mr. Crepsley and a the Vampire Prince Vancha ...more

when I read this book I think about how appearences can really change how someone thinks about someone, like evanna when darren first meets her he thinks she is a witch because of how she looks but she is actually a very nice person.people all the time worry about how they look, when someone looks at you and classifies you on how you look because thats the only part of you that they will be able to see. if you are ugly then people will pr
I didn't care for this one as much as the others. I'm not sure why. It could possibly be the lack of setting. In previous books, they were either at the Cirque, Vampire Mountain, or hotel. In Hunters of the Dusk they were all over the place.
I am glad Darren and Mr. Crepsley returned to the Cirque for a little while though. Honestly, I would have been fine if this entire series was just about their travels with the other performers.
It's hard to believe how much time has passed since the first boo

Mr. Tiny tells Mr. Crepsley and Darren that they have to go find the Vampaneze Lord and kill him, and that only them and one other vampire that they will find later can kill him. Darren and Mr. Crepsley go to find the other vampire, so they start searching. They find Vancha March, the third vampire. All three of them want to find the Vampaneze Lord, but they don't know where to start, so they just follow their instincts. Then, they do find him, and while trying to kill him, they killed all the V ...more

This book is another book that is about the vampire Darren. He has become more mature and he has gained new friends that have stuck with him since he became the vampire he is now. He is now stronger then ever because of his mentor Mr Crepsly.

I can connect this book to the world because it shows that once you have someone to guide you, you will be able to accomplish what ever you want to do. In the world there are many people who like to help others with there future.

I rate this book 4 and 1/2 s

I picked this series up to donate, but I was curious since I'd seen the movie inspired by the series so I figured I'd read them before donating them.

I have to say, this series was not about what I thought it was. I was expecting books set in and around and with the circus. I was not expecting prophesies and epic questing to stop the killer vampires from destroying the good vampires.

Not what I'm interested in reading, but I'm sure they will be appreciated by someone else.

My love of reading star
While death is certain,
we do not know who it will claim...

I'm back on the reading wagon! I hadn't realised just how long I'd gone without picking up a book, and it's shameful. Hunters of the Dusk makes that feeling worse by being so darn good. I love the kind of mini-trilogies the series contains; they're fantastic, and help keep the reader invested with the balanced myriad of plots and adventures, foreshadowed with the coming of the 'big plot'. The Vampire Prince's conclusion revealed a future
Daniel Sahr
Overall, Hunters of the Dusk, is a decent book,but it is the last one I am planning to read from the series. This book was the first real change in a while with new settings, characters and ideas implemented in varying degrees of success. The book was decent overall, with the much needed return of old characters but the ideas were all cliche and boring while the setting change is almost not noticed.
Starting with the good, this book makes the must needed change of bringing back characters from

I just couldn't put the book away!
This book, Hunters of the dusk was about Darren Shan, a not fully blooded Vampire, i.e. he has not yet become a real vampire. Darren lives in Vampire Mountain with a lot of other vampires. There is a war coming up against the vampaneze, the vampires’ leading enemies. The different princes and leaders are preparing for the war and thinking of different strategies.
One day, the founder of vampire mountain, Mr Tiny comes to visit the va
I been reading Hunters of the Dusk by Darren Shan which is part of the Cirque Du Freak Series. It is the 7th book in the series

The hunt for the Vampanze Lord has started as Darren and the team of three vampires, the two vampire princes (Darren and Vancha) and Mr. Crepsly. If they don’t succeed with finding and killing the Vampanze Lord the whole vampire clan will die away in the War of scars against the Vampanze clan.

The most interesting part of the book is was when the Vancha told the truth

Darren, the half-vampire kid who has recently been crowned a Prince to avoid being sentenced to death, is now traveling with his mentor Mr. Crepsley, another Vampire Prince, and creepy Little Person Harkat. Because there is a prophecy about the Vampaneze Lord being able to bring about the end of the Vampire Clan--handed down to them by Des Tiny, a man whose prophecies aren't ever wrong--the quartet has to find the bad guy and make sure they seize one of the four remaining chances to kill him.

Rasanya saya tumbuh bersama manusia setengah vampir ini. Bersama-sama mengikuti perjalanannya, dan merasakan tanggung jawab berat yang tidak seharusnya dipikul.

Buku ini banyak sekali konflik yang mendebarkan membuat perut melilit karena tegang dan penasaran.

Darren akhirnya keluar dari gunung vampir mengemban tanggung jawab sebagai pangeran vampir untuk menjaga kelangsungan hidup klan nya. Melakukan perjalanan bersama mr.crepsley menuruti takdir akan ramalan mr.tiny. Mereka menemui lady evanna

Hunters of the Dusk is the seventh book in Darren Shan’s CIRQUE DU FREAK series. Though Shan always does a nice job of quickly and sufficiently recapping the plot, it’d be best not to start here. Go back and begin with A Living Nightmare. And be warned that this review will contain spoilers for previous books.

I chose this book because I read the other books in the series and i wanted to continue on. Darren has been a prince now for a couple of years and one day Mr. Tiny visits and says three hunters, which are Darren, Larten, and Vancha, must hunt down the Vampaneze Lord if they want to win the war of scars. Mr. Tiny says they will have only 5 chances to kill him to win. My favorite quote in this book is “Ever hear of the phrase, Banging you're head on a brick wall?"

I love this series and I can only imagine what I will do when I'm finished it. I can't really say anything without giving anything away. All I can say though is it will surprise you. I am so glad I got Devin, Courtney, Zack, Daniel and maybe Mr.C reading this series. I hope they all love it as much as I do, and as always I can't wait to start the next one!

Several years pass by since we last saw our heroes with Darren enjoying his reign as a vampire prince among his fellow princes. That all ends, however, when Mr. Tiny arrives and tells the vampires that the vampaneze had a leader called the Vampaneze Lord who is destined to leads the vampaneze into victory unless three of Tiny's choosen hunters can kill him. If the hunters kill the Vampaneze Lord then the vampire's will inevitably win the war and wipe out the vampaneze off of the face of the map. ...more

An addicting story that wont let you go until you finish them all. Don't open this book unless you're ready to finish it within the hour. I enjoy the fact that each book was on the smaller scale, allowing them to easily be read in one sitting. Unfortunately, it also meant it was a pain to have to wait an entire evening to go back to the store and pick up the next two or three in the series. Author Darren Shan shows he has what it takes to write a compelling story brimming with suspense and horro ...more

Once again we have leapt forward 6 years in Shan's story, but once again I didn't feel like I had missed anything, I still knew all the basic and important details of what has happened since and it progresses the story well.

The Vampaneze Lord is coming - that's the message Mr Tiny delivers that sets off a chain of events and adventures. Darren, Mr Crepsley and Harket set off to try and track down and face the Vampire Lord, they are joined by Vampire Prince Vancha March, and on the way they meet
Darren Shan, was selected as a Prince which only the noble vampires are chosen for. As a new Price, along with Mr Crepsley and Vancha to kill the leader of their blood cousins, the Vampaneze, with all three of their strengths, along with Darren's close friend Harket, will they be able to track down the king and slay him, or will they watch the clan of the Vampire clan perish?
